Review of “Nobody But You” by Jill Shalvis

Anytime I get approved for a Jill Shalvis book by her publisher, I do a little happy dance because I know I’m in for a good time.  Her characters are well developed, the dialogue sharp, and the sex scenes steamy.  This was no exception. Sophie Marren is trying to pull her life back together after …

Review of “Head Over Heels” by Jill Shalvis

After finishing Christmas in Lucky Harbor I had to go back and reread Head Over Heels because it felt unfinished if I stopped with The Sweetest Thing.  I have to say that this was not my favorite book in the series, but after going back I have a new found appreciation for it.  Actually, I think I read …

Video of the Day–Bono Apologizes in a Very Bono Way

https://youtu.be/5WybiA263bw   As I was reading The Sweetest Thing all I could think about was this song.  Back in the day, I recorded this song on a cassette and listened to it on my Sony yellow walkman.  Okay, it was my dad’s walkman, but I stole it from him at some point in 1995.  Anyway, with …

Review of “Christmas in Lucky Harbor” by Jill Shalvis

I think I’ve mentioned my love of all things Jill Shalvis and Lucky Harbor, but just in case I haven’t–I LOVE JILL SHALVIS AND LUCKY HARBOR!!! Phew.  Now that that’s out of my system, let’s get down to business.  Christmas in Lucky Harbor is a compilation of the first two books in the series (Simply Irresistible and The …

Video of the Day–Fast Food Wants You to Keep Warm

https://youtu.be/07PA2vPXw9k   So, apparently, this song, Keep Me Warm This Winter by Erin Bowman, was in a McDonald’s commercial.  Usually, I stay far away from that creepy ass clown’s death house, but this song is just so cute and since the East Coast has been feeling the cold this week, I just had to post this. …

Review of “My Kind of Wonderful” by Jill Shalvis

I am a notoriously slow reader, stemming from the fact that I hated books as a kid.  The closest I came to reading was watching Wishbone on PBS.  I figured if a story wasn’t good enough to be on television or made into a movie, then it wasn’t worth the time it took me to read …

Review of “Once in a Lifetime” by Jill Shalvis

I wrote this back in July when I first read the book, but somehow, I never posted it on here.  I’ve made a few changes here and there, but otherwise it is exactly as I originally wrote it. The other day, I started reading Jill Shalvis’s most recent book (Once in a Lifetime) and I …

The Worst Books I Read This Year

Last week, I posted the best books I read this year.  Tonight, I’m going to continue the fun by listing my least favorite books of the year.  As before, these books weren’t necessarily published this year. 1. The First Love Cookie Club by Lori Wilde I read and reviewed this book almost a full year ago, …
